So I was sitting here racking my brain trying to figure out something crafty to make my crafty mother for the big day.  She has always loved the bags and needle holders from Lantern Moon, well I don't have that much money so I decided to hit the sewing machine and try my hand at re-creating it.  So first I made her a Japanese Knot Bag, I got the tutoiral here http://www.crazycreekquilts.com/free-japanese-knot-bag-patterns.html


Inside Pockets

I also made a Fan Needle Case, this I just winged and I think it came out pretty good, it holds crochet hooks great and will hold up to size 6 inch double pointed needles(I need to find just the right button):

Here is the inside, I used felt, I think maybe the next one I make I might use fabric instead.  The blue ink is from my fabric pen, it should disappear soon lol:

I'm going to fill the bag also with some sock yarn since my mom is addicted to making socks now.  Also I am making her some little crocheted flower stitch markers too.
